forêt nom féminin is a piece in six movements inspired by the homonymous book by Jérôme de Vienne, published by ISTI MIRANT STELLA in 2021 and the website foretnomfeminin.hotglue.me, an ongoing conversation between Diana Duta and Jérôme de Vienne about translation, the infinite permutations of language, a less-than-human word, an errant narrative of many voices, above all a labyrinthine and obscure research method.

The process, following the six scores found on the website, is based on the collection of different elements and fragments (through field recording) and their recombination (through editing and mixing) in order to build a sense of landscape and a narrative which traverses it from within.

Luca Piovesan is an Italian sound artist based in Brussels. He explores the possibilities of the accordion by collaborating with composers and artists and by mixing his instrument with synthesizers, field recordings or effect pedals. He regularly performs as a duo (Promenade Sauvage) or with the Ensemble Ictus. He teaches at the Cosenza Conservatory and conducts research at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussels.


On the occasion of the publication of forêt nom féminin, an event will be held on Saturday 27 November 2021 at Plein Jour, Paris.
